Making Scented Soap
60 Fragrant Soaps and Bath Bombes to Make at HomeBook - 2003
A simple and sensuous pleasure, scented soap is easy to make, a delight to use, and an always welcome gift. Here are more than 60 recipes for handmade soaps, arranged by scent, that carry the heavenly fragrances of sunflower and calendula petals, lemon sherbet, rosemary and thyme, cucumber and peppermint, frankincense and myrrh. All the recipes call for natural bases derived from olive oil, jojoba, cocoa butter, and sweet almond extract. Citrus, floral, woodland, and herb accents can come from your own backyard. Instructions show how to use a variety of shapes and textures to create bath bars, bombes, scrubs, shaving soaps, shower gels, and fizzes. Because a handmade gift is so special, there is a section devoted to the finishing touches of packaging and presenting your soap treasures.
Sixty easy-to-make recipes for handmade soaps, arranged by scent, carry the heavenly fragrances of sunflower and calendula petals, lemon sherbet, rosemary and thyme, cucumber and peppermint, frankincense and myrrh. “This is a good selection for public libraries.”—Library Journal. “In addition to a variety of delightful, aromatic recipes, you’ll find everything you need to know to get started.”—Crafts ‘N Things.
